Pretty good hostel :)
I was happy with the hostel and staff were wonderful the cleanliness of toilets and showers were very good and provide what you need for day to day stuff. Towel hire could have been a dollar cheaper seeming as I used mine once for $3. And not sure why I had to pay $75 for three nights but when I got to the check in it was listed $60 for three nights per person? Didn't make sense to me and a bit disappointed but other than that location and all was very good if you don't mind the extra fee booking online compared to what is shown at desk.

Excellent staff
Booked two weeks in a private room, for myself, partner and child. For the price we paid, it was good value. It's an older style building, starting to get a bit run down, but they keep it clean, and have all the essentials. Mostly, however, the staff were exceptional. All very very friendly and helpful, absolutely welcoming, great service.
